COMMEMORATIONS to mark the 100th anniversary of the Cadder Pit disaster next year are taking shape.
August 3, 2013, marks the 100th anniversary of the tragedy, which claimed the lives of 22 men.
The pit belonged to the Carron Company and was situated at Mavis Valley, in Bishopbriggs.
Families from the Mavis Valley area, Lambhill, Garscube, Possilpark, Jellyhill and Maryhill all lost loved ones in the disaster.
East Dunbartonshire Council intends to mark the occasion nearer to the date of the disaster.
Provost Una Walker is appealing for anyone whose family has a connection with the pit to come forward.
She said: “I am delighted that we are making progress and are still gathering information about how the disaster affected so many people within and around the area.
“I would continue to appeal for anyone whose family had a connection with the pit to contact firstname.lastname@example.org.”
